A little 7 sport ladybird (coccinella 7-punctata) that I came across in Parbold in Lancashire. This is the most commonly spotted ladybird by people and was found in bramble bushes.

If you spot any lady birds be sure to help out the Ladybird Survey by taking a note and sending them a picture.

Early morning shot of one of Manchester’s older Public Houses, Peveril of the Peak built in 1829. The  “Pev”  is a fine example of a classical tiled CAMRA pub that has been in the same Swanwick family for over 40 years and long may it remain so.
